Sometimes, for a lot of different, etherogeneous reasons, your hard disk drive may show a different size than its actual capacity. This is usually due to your motherboard, hidden areas create by your laptop manufacturer to store backup files, mixing binary and decimal gigabytes etc. Whatever the reason, here is a nice, freeware, small application which once installed on a computer is able to restore factory capacity of any hard drive. And believe me, you won’t have to read any complicated manual to run it. Just install it, click the “Restore Capacity” button and you are done!

HDD Capacity Restore is a small, easy-to-use application which in just one click is able to restore factory capacity of any hard disk drive.  Note that this application does not erase or delete any data on your hard disk but it just alters HDD firmware (HPA and DCO settings). It is strongly recommend to re-power your computer before running this tool. Please, keep in mind to re-power your computer before running this tool. This means that you will have to completely power off your computer; then power on, start Windows and run the tool.

    I have Win7 x64 and this says “Can’t Load Driver” when I start it. Just for those x64’ers who wonder if this works.
